- Hey guys,
As you know, the MEFAs are run mostly by volunteers who share their time and
talents to make the awards run smoother every year. People don't participate
in the MEFAs - as volunteers or authors - for the money. There simply isn't
any. But the company that provides our web space does occasionally expect us
to pay them. :-) So every year around this time we collect donations so we
can pay their fees.
Any donations will be used to pay official site expenses like our web site
fees. You can pay by debit/credit card using Paypal (which is quite secure,
and we will never see your information). Use the button at
If you prefer you can also mail me cash or check and I will make the
donation on your behalf. Email me at mefasupportATgmailDOTcom and I will
send you my address.
Don't worry if you can't donate to us. Some of you are students on limited
budgets. And with the bad economy, I am sure many people are having a hard
time affording all the things they need and want to do. If you don't feel
you can afford to donate, you can also support the awards by finding good
fic to nominate next year and participating in any capacity when the time
comes. But for those of you who do want to chip in for site expenses, now's
(Now's not the only time. You can donate whenever you have the money. But I
try to only show up with my hand out once a year.)
